Burlington, VT, Jun 11, 2009 — A new national study says jobs in Vermont's green energy economy are growing faster than other employment sectors in the state, and are easily outpacing the national average for growth in green jobs. The Pew Charitable Trusts study found that between 1998 and 2007, Vermont's green energy economy saw 15.3 percent growth, versus overall job growth in the state of 7.4 percent. Growth in green jobs nationwide was put at 9.1 percent. At the heart of President Obama's economic recovery plan is the promise of new green collar jobs. Workers concerned about being laid off from their blue collar jobs are starting to wonder what those new jobs will look like. Julie Grant reports.
